new tires!

so recently, i ran over a 10mm bolt...

it's still in my tire. it's been there for about a week...

needless to say i'm going to need new tires sooner or later.

what tires do you recommend?

my size is 205/55R16

I have also heard very good things about the Goodyear eagle one times. These come stock on the Nissan maxima and I am thinking of getting them for my car next.

Hankook makes an awesome tire. My boss has a maxima and he loves the Goodyear Eagle 1 tires. He is just about to replaces them with another set after 60K miles.
